"Dedicated to Health Insurance for College Students".

The Good News About Current Law in States Without Similar Legislation…

Once children reach age 19, they can continue to receive benefits under their parents’ health insurance if they are enrolled as full time college students. The reason for this is that full time college students are concentrating on their studies and cannot be expected to work full time in order to obtain their own health insurance. This makes sense.

The Bad News About Current Law in States Without Similar Legislation…

If a college student suddenly becomes seriously ill or injured and cannot maintain a full time college schedule, he or she has three choices:

1. Maintaining a full time schedule against doctors’ advice and possibly decreasing his or her chance of getting well.
2. Cutting back his or her hours and losing the very health benefits he or she is relying on for recovery, or
3. Cutting back his or her hours and paying the cost of maintaining health insurance through C.O.B.R.A, the premiums for which are often too great for a family
to bear.
